Levitt Shell 2017 Summer Lineup

Posted by Holly Whitfield | April 19th 2017 20750 0

The Levitt Shell announced their 2017 summer lineup today. Most of the shows start at 7:30 p.m. and they’re free, but donations are accepted.

Memphis’ Levitt Shell In Action

A few things to know about Memphis’ Levitt Shell Free Concert Series:

  • Bring chairs, blankets, coolers, picnics, any of your own food and drink – or enjoy the beer and food for sale.
  • Most of the shows are free, except for a few fundraiser concerts. It’s always great to bring a couple of bucks to throw in the donation buckets, though.
  • Most shows begin at 7:30 p.m., but I would get there at least a half-hour early to snag a good spot.
  • Parking is a challenge. Get there early to get a spot, take a Lyft, or even better: ride a bike or walk!
  • The shows are all ages, but as with anything, parents should look up the entertainment ahead of time to be sure they’re cool with it.

I write about what’s going on with Memphis music, food, arts, events, sports, people, and culture. Memphians love Elvis and barbeque with a passion that must be seen to be believed, but there is so much more to this place.

      Hi Paul,
      The Levitt Shell says the fall lineup will be announced “later in the summer”, my guess is late August? Unfortunately I’m not sure about the Steel Wheels, either. Sorry I can’t be of more help!
